During last weekend's Campeonato Pernambucano fifth-round match between Sport and Nautico, Sport's Marcelinho Paraiba collided with Siloe and had a tooth fly out of his head as a result. So after Sport won the match 4-3, Marcelinho asked club officials to try and find the tooth. When they couldn't, he offered a R$1,000 ($572.28) reward to anyone who could find it since an implant would cost him four times that much.
And how does he know so much about the cost of dental implants? Oddly enough, this is the second time in two years that Marcelinho has had a tooth knocked out during a match. Maybe losing multiple teeth while playing is a sign that the 36-year-old should retire. Or wear a mouth guard.
